to the president freshly re-elected and now setting the table for negotiations with capitol hill inviting congressional leaders to the white house next week for urgent talks on the fiscal cliff. this is no exaggeration because early next year trillions of dollars in tax increases and automatic spending cuts will come into effect. and so in his first public statement since tuesday's emphatic victory, the president pushed for a deal on tax cuts for the middle class arguing there's no reason for them to be linked to tax cuts for the wealthy. >> let's not wait. even as we're negotiating a broader deficit reduction package, let's extend the middle class tax cuts right now. it would immediately take a huge chunk of the economic uncertainty off the table. >> the president said that his re-election means that voters support what he called a balanced approach to deficit reduction. meaning that historically low rates for higher earners should now expire. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entir

as possible. and the question -- it is so suspicious. comes days after the election and then, you know, days after the election, and then days before he is supposed to testify. now at the very least, shannon, he should absolutely testify this week. there is no reason, no excuse not to have him continue to testify this week. >> congressman -- [overlapping dialogue] >> i agree with the congressman. he should be testifying. i would say it ought to be related to what happened in benghazi. >> do you ever think the timing of how this played out is suspicious? >> of course. it's like a high duh factor. a few days before he's supposed to testify, he's out. obviously, there was control over the timing. he had to leave before he was supposed to go before congress. that doesn't look right, that doesn't smell right. anybody who understands what happens in washington, when a person is pushed out a few days before a hearing, that's the reason for congress to call that person and answer questions about what happened in benghazi and how were four americans killed as a result, what role did the cia play? >>
--61 million on romney's campaign. but we really saw what wall street thought after the election when the stock market had the worst day of the year. you could see that was definitely election related. you saw investment banks get very hard hit because there will probably be a lot more regulation. you saw that utilities went down and hospitals and insurers would benefit from obamacare and managed health companies go down. wall street said we don't like this. we're seeing a lot of lobbyists come out with more conciliatory language. there is hope there can be a compromise. because in the fiscal cliff comes on january 1. >> i think the cbo was saying 9.1% unemployment and it could be catastrophic and drive us into another recession. look if taxes go up on the wealthy and that has been the president's mantra, could that be a long term drag on the stock market? what does it do to people 401-ks? >> it's definitely less incentive to invest in stocks. not so much as rich people but people at the level tend to be small business owners. they are the ones who hire. that is a huge issue because j

manager about, you know, it was something that the republicans were pushing during the election, and the democrats are now easing up to it. and can there's no reason if somebody tells you that, you know, social security is the third rail, you know, why is it that the home interest deduction or the, you know, 401(k) subsidies are considered untouchable, but social security really isn't? i mean, it's because peterson has spent a lot of money, and i should own up that epi has worked with peterson on stuff, but we don't agree on this. to try to convince people that, you know, we have to touch that third rail. um, i'm just going to wrap up with just to be provocative, generally speaking this has been a love fest. i want to give bruce bartlett a bear hug. he probably wouldn't want it, although i don't think i'm contagious anymore, i've had this cold for about a week. but there are three areas that i think are important where progressives and people on this panel disagree. we did agree with cap and budget. one is, generally speaking, the importance of deficit reduction. we tend to be d
